Sunday Rewind When World Record Watches Start To Get Weird

Sunday Rewind When World Record Watches Start To Get Weird

This was also an auction season less dominated by one or two big-ticket lots, with the catalogs showing strong mid-to-high tier pieces throughout We did get one new world record of note, with the only known Asprey-signed Patek Philippe ref 2499 setting a record for the reference at Sotheby's on Tuesday.

So now seemed as good a time as any to look back at what it takes for a watch to set a record and how sometimes both the process and the watches themselves are anything but straightforward The record that seems to exemplify this the most is the title of most expensive Rolex Submariner in the world Obviously that's a pretty important watermark in the grand scheme of watch collecting.

Watches don't get much more iconic, collectable, and covetable than the Submariner, and there are versions of the watch starting at just a few thousand dollars, meaning we can get a really good sense of what takes something from pedestrian to legendary. . Source
